"Enhancing our youth through excellence in teamwork, sportsmanship, & softball"
Thank you for your interest in having your daughter play on a "select" softball team sanctioned by FMYSA. Should you choose to try out, the commitment should not be taken lightly. This is a serious commitment of time, energy, and money for the selected players/parents. Most select teams begin practice in January, play games from February through November, play 40-80 games, play numerous tournaments both locally and remotely to include other states, play tournaments that start on Thursday evenings and may end on Monday evenings (including Sunday morning and evenings).
The number of teams FMYSA has chosen to "sanction" was based on a number of things to include the following:
The timeline for the selection process and the method that these teams will be formed will be left to the individual head coaches. All selections must be complete by Feb 10th. This will allow those not making one of the FMYSA Sanctioned Select Teams to still have time to register for our Spring Recreation program.
Select softball is NOT an equal play program. It is a place for those who choose to play a higher level of softball. For the most part, the best players will consume the majority of the repetitions. That being said, we do encourage all coaches to provide a memorable experience and attempt to “service” each player with quality game time experience.
Should you have further interest, please contact the coach for times and locations for their tryouts.
FMYSA considers new coach applications twice a year (see calendar for dates). Applicants are interviewed by a Select Committee, who makes recommendations to the FMYSA Board. The Board decides whether or not to add teams, and coaches.
There may or may not be any new teams added at any particular age group each season. If you have applied in the past, you must reapply to be considered for the next season.
